The gift is from DSW of Saratoga, Calif.
DSW, who wishes to remain anonymous, has generously given several large donations in the past, including a $1,000 gift last year and another $1,000 gift earlier this year. Previous contributions have gone to funding Kindle cases, Kindle batteries, and Kindle e-books.
This gift will enable the purchase of 20 new $69 Kindles, along with 20 new cases.
All right, in case you missed it, let’s re-read that last sentence together, very slowly (this time in bold). This gift will enable the purchase of 20 new $69 Kindles, along with 20 new cases. But that’s not all. The balance will go to buying books, Kindle cases, and replacement batteries for future Kindle donations.
You know what that means, right? Yep, you got it: My dream of reaching 100 Kindles by the end of 2013 will now be a reality. In fact, I’ve already bought the 20 Kindles, and they should arrive on or before Dec. 18.
It’s all pretty amazing!
I sincerely and deeply thank DSW, not only for this latest major gift, but also for their ongoing support of the Kindle Classroom Project. DSW’s generosity inspires me to think bigger. What was once just a little side project is now something much larger. And it’s growing every day!
